AMIS—Adaptive Multimedia Information System
AMIS is now archived and is no longer being developed or supported
AMIS is a free, open source software program that can be used to read DAISY books. It is self-voicing, meaning that no specialized screen-reading software is needed in order for it to be used by visually impaired people.
Who is this for?
AMIS can be used by a diverse range of readers, in particular those who are visually impaired—both partially and those with full sight loss.
Important: AMIS is no longer being developed or supported. The current version AMIS 3.1.3 was developed by the DAISY Consortium and released in November, 2011.
AMIS offers a fully-featured multimedia reading experience.
- You can navigate by section, subsection, page, and phrase, and set bookmarks as you read.
- You can also enlarge the font, change the colors, and speed up or slow down the audio.
- AMIS allows you to open books from a CD, from your disk, from the web, and it will automatically re-open your most recent book at the point you stopped reading.
- There are two display modes: the traditional default look and also the basic look which offers a simplified interface.
- AMIS has been designed to be translated into many languages.
AMIS supports DAISY 2.02 and DAISY 3 books of several varieties:
- Multi-volume (DAISY 2.02 only)
